Ronald Bobroff & son now fugitives after fleeing SA
The Bobroffs ripped off millions from road accidents & medical negligence victims in recent years.
CAPE TOWN - Personal Injury lawyer Ronald Bobroff and his son have apparently fled the country and are now regarded as fugitives.
Road accident victims have laid complaints against the pair, alleging that they charged a contingency fee of 40 percent of the monies recovered by their firm from the Road Accident Fund.
The matter eventually landed up in the High Court in Pretoria, but Bobroff and his son, who were expected to hand themselves over to the police this week, are now believed to be in Australia.
Earlier this month, the Bobroffs' admitted that a contingency fee agreement they got some of their clients to sign was illegal.
Bobroff however has confirmed his wife has been arrested in Johannesburg this morning.
He says, "The allegations are false and I can't make any comment at this stage, but will issue a statement in due course. My dear wife, who is almost 70-years-old has been imprisoned for nothing."
